Well, you see, that was supposed to go into my car. I already have HIDs, K&N SRI, P2R, Skunk2 coils & camber kits, rims, Magnaflow 2.5" exhaust, DCRH, TWM Short Shifter & bushings, so my car is where I want it. Maybe a reflash. That's it.

I don't want to spend anymore on my car.

$200 sold !:D

Not a big fan of creative labs video.

Nice setup.

Not getting Creative Labs video. Don't even believe they make video cards, do they? I'm getting an nVidia 8800 GTX ULTRA 768Mb

Did you mean X-FI ?

My thoughts..

1) Vista was a mistake

2) 1.4mb for cable is kind of low..

3) If I'm reading that correctly and your CPU is a quad core.. way overdone and overspent.

4) Nice ass vid card.. shame you didn't get two and go SLI (if your mobo and vid card can do that)

Not a shabby computer at all.. but I would've went a little on the lower end since everything on there will soon be outdated. I spent about $1200 on mine and got dual core CPU, two high end vid cards, a raptor hard-drive (10k rpm operating speed) and oodles of other fun stuff. I'm still likin yours though :thumb:

windows 95 was a mistake, 98, 2000, XP etc etc... eventually they'll fix most of it, all you need are the patches right?

1. Wouldn't pay for it.. XP works fine, but why buy outdated software?
2. Probably all that was available in his area (the sticks)
3. Quad Core is not overkill for someone that does video editing and music production

Well for one, I genuinely doubt you can show me a variety of software that can even begin to support FOUR cores (A lot of my crap doesn't even support two yet..).

Secondly, I doubt he does intensive video/music editing. Just a hunch..

And three, quad core is still overkill even if you disprove the first two because there is nothing intensive enough out yet that even needs that many.. even if it was supported. I run a ****-ton of crap at once on my dual core (Most doesn't even support two cores) and I bought it over a year ago, and not a trace of lag.
